What do the palmetto tree and crescent emblem have to do with Charleston? Well, on June 28, 1776, Col. William Moultrie and his troops successfully defended Charleston Harbor against an attack by the British fleet. The American soldiers wore a blue uniform with a silver crescent adorning their helmets. They also flew a blue flag with a matching crescent design. The soft, pithy Palmetto tree logs which reinforced Col. Moultrie's fort on Sullivan's Island are credited with absorbing the force of the British bombardment. The stinging defeat of the British fleet, coming just days before the signing of the Declaration of Independence, was the first major victory of the Revolution, thus keeping the South free from British occupation for years. The state later adopted Col. Moultrie's flag design, adding the Palmetto tree to acknowledge his spectacular victory.  

 

Charlestonians have since forgiven our British friends for their rudeness.
